Man, those just look outstanding!! Great work!

btw - if your interior is stock it's actually Tanin Red, not Imola Red. I'm pretty sure the Imola Red interior was only available on the ///M3.

Looks professional! Good job!

(I can't wait for my silver cf fabric)
Thanks man! And where the hell did you get silver carbin fiber fabric!!!! Thats what I originally wanted to do. I look and the only stuff that I found was some really thick stuff that seemed like it would be impossible to stretch around my door handles.

Hahayeah I was definitely impressed with how well that fabric looks. The door handles were a little tough to do but the good thing about that stuff is that you can stretch it!

Definitely take your time. Not something that you want to rush through becasue if you get wrinkles it wont look good. The trim is pretty easy but as I can see, you have a coupe so when you get to the door handles your going to have to stretch the fabric a little to work around the curves so I would suggest having someone with you that can help hold the armrest while you stretch and hold down to get out all the wrinkles.

Good luck :thumbup:

That is truly sharp, looks professional.

Now that you have this dynamic trim, are you going to continue with pillars, dash, etc.?
